Have at it y'all !
Hey Florida -- let's show the Nation and all the RINO slugs some TeaPower today !
This one oughta be good for a couple thousand !
( oy, my poor ping page ! )
Thank you for saying that. We need to be reminded. Even if this is my last political adventure with the Republicans, until they deliver to me MY candidate, and MY Tea Party stacked to the gills on the RNC, already funded and endorsed with a quill in his hand and all of the above on a platter, with nothing left to do but for the announcement. We have already enough glass under our finger nails to last a life time.
Can I even express how DONE I will be with the Republican Party? I don’t think so.
But for Newt, and after that it ends there. This would include the Trickster Rickster Santorum.
Newt Gingrich 446,052 31.62%
Ron Paul 97,402 6.9%
Mitt Romney 661,855 46.92%
Rick Santorum 186,177 13.2%
another bump up for newt and down for mitt 63%ish in
At least it looks like the Gingrich+Santorum vote will be higher than his.
Romney won’t marginalize Israel like Obama. That’s one plus. Things will not be the same with a Romney presidency as an Obama presidency. They might not be the exact way we want them, but still better.
We can look at the situation as it stands now, work hard for a conservative congress to hold Romney’s feet to the fire, then pull up our big kid panties and vote in the general. That’s the grown up way to handle disappointment and frustration; don’t give in to emotion the way the left does. We are the side that uses reason over emotion.
This is no blowout, in fact, its a tactical defeat for the HIGH PRIEST FROM PLANET KOLOB, who spent 15 million to buy 50 delegates.
We may be actually better off with the current occupant we know for 4 years than 8 years of the enemy right inside aka the evil and ever calculating Mittens.
Ditto Duval Co .. 193k registered, 0% reporting
Just sent more myself! :)
Gingrich isn't strong in Dade; he's getting annihilated in Dade 63% to 25%.
You are aware there are non-Cubans in Dade County, I hope?
Also, what good is it to have a conservative court if the whole country is controlled by socialists? The SCOTUS has yet to stop the progressive march to the left.
Good point about the Supreme Court. We have to face reality, I guess.
If the tea party in Florida truly went for Mitt, than this will probably happen all across the country ? Sad.
I like that very much.
GO NEWT GO...... damn the torpedos, full speed ahead.
I for one will never vote for Romney at any level. If this country is so stupid to put someone like Romney as the candidate Im ready to let it get so bad that we have to start over.
Romney is already running against Obama, based on his speech tonight.
Keep in mind that with Obama in the White house four more years, it will be a ratings bonanza for FNC. Look at what happened to MSNBC & CNN when the rats took over in 06 & 08, their ratings dropped off exponentially. Ergo Romney losing to Obama in the general is a necessary evil to maintain their ratings and “Conservative” illusion. Sounds crazy but the arguement has merit.
There are far more votes left to count in the large South Florida counties than there are in the uncounted panhandle counties.
Add Newt’s 32, Santorum’s 13, and Paul’s 7,
and you have more than 50%.
Conservatives (or anti-Romney voters) outnumber Romney supporters.
So who won?
“Romney”, in a “landslide”, according to Drudge (and likely the rest of the media)
If Romney is the nominee I’d like to see a substantial write in campaign for “Say no to magic underwear!” just to embarrass him.
WE can all do this thing! MOney bomb tonight for Newt!
I am not giving up, lets go to the convention!
